  1. Affinity Online Help Hello all, we're happy to be able to offer you an online version of the in-app help! Access Designer, Photo & Publisher Help here: https://affinity.help Here are some of the additional features we're able to implement as a result of having proper browser support: Dynamic language switching: The help will determine your language and (if it's available) serve you a localised copy of the help. If you prefer to read in another language, however, you'll find a combo box at the bottom left which will enable you to change languages—and stay on the page you're currently reading. Print: Sounds simple, but with full browser support we can now implement printing of the topic pages. The print icon in the bottom left will give you a nicely formatted printout of the current topic. Share: Clicking the clipboard icon will copy the current topic's URL to your clipboard, which means you can easily point other people towards topics that may help them. Responsive: The help was responsive anyway, including off-canvas menu functionality so you could collapse the window and still read a topic, but this is taken further in this version of the help. The help is formatted nicely and usable even on a 4" iPhone SE screen. Search: we've implemented our own bespoke search for the online help which is fast and accurate. Access it via the tab system along the top left. Favourites: you can add topics to your favourites list to easily access them during future browser sessions. Simply click the + (plus) icon next to the "Favourites" tab to add the current topic. With this online version you'll be able to print out topics and view them on your tablets/phones, which are two of the most common requests when it comes to help feedback. As always, if you have any feedback or find any issues with this online version, please let us know! Hope you find it useful.
  2. Hello folks, here is a vector portrait of David Bowie, created with Affinity Designer. Would appreciate feedback, that would be great. https://www.bodobe.de/bowie-vector-portrait/
  3. I created FlowCharts using Artboards with Affinity Designer, very easy and successful. The text was in English, I saved copies in AF format and as PDF. The PDFs were printed and all the text was, as expected, in perfect English. I have just reopened the file in Affinity Designer to incorporate suggested amendments, and notice that some letters in some words have been replaced with symbols that I don't recognise. The attachment shows the 'new' version of what I typed - and I checked the previously printed copies which confirmed that this change has only occurred on re-opening the file today. The text was entered as: Limited information to branches, e.g. advertising meetings b.... Foreign membership number queries... I checked the language in preferences and it was set to English (United States), I have just reset that to English (United Kingdom and (not surprisingly) the foreign symbols are still in the text. This means I have to check the spelling in 14 artboards/flowcharts, thankfully the red underlining will help. Any ideas why this happened, please? Hilary
  4. Create a text block and put some words in. While still editing that, the Mac defines option-arrows to move the insertion point by words and by extension option-shift-arrows. (Windows ctrl-arrows). It appears you remapped control to command which is incorrect. Command-arrows means move to the end of the line. Option-↑↓ is beginning/end of paragraph respectively though I can't see a lot of use here. I can't fix this using the keyboard control panel and find it extremely aggravating. If I'm at work, my brain thinks Windows. I can't handle 30 years using a Mac and it not working like a Mac. Mildly annoying but not aggravating and it can be fixed using the Keyboard Syspref (or the very Windows one you could have omitted) but is only cosmetic and not worth the effort. Apple decided to show each modifier key to hold so it doesn't show ⌘> for Bigger but shows ⇧⌘. Related... we're used to icons for Portrait/Landscape which required too much thinking to find. Maybe Adobe got "clever" there too (not going to pull up PS Elements to check). There are standardized keys beyond ZXCV such as all Apple apps. Check out the apps that come with a Mac and you'll see a slew for text. (Harkening back to keypads, it doesn't show ⇧⌘= but ⌘+ or at least it does on keyboards with one like mine.) I can understand following Adobe shortcuts and again, can change them so it's not as big of a deal.
  5. Hey! I am not sure this is a bug or this is by design but for me it seems to be an inconsistency. See the animation. If you hide an instance of a symbol all others get hidden too. I don't expect this to happen because if you delete an instance of a symbol all the others don't get deleted. Should be the same with hiding in my opinion. Sometimes I have to hide only a single or several instances of a symbol but I can't do it and have to delete it instead... Maybe this could be changed in future? All the best, Chris
  6. I searched the site and faq without luck. I have an outlined font that I want to fill the whitespace with a gradient. I tried converting the typed text to curves and it appears to have made a single bezier line through the entire glyph (take a C and put a line on the surrounding the inner continuing to the outer edge and then close the C to an O keeping the lines). So, it's treating the text strokes as fill-able but not the whitespace. The attached how do I fill outlineed font with a gradient.pdf shows it well Is there an way without converting to bitmaps (yuck)? Thanks❗️
  7. Hello! I wrote text over a transparent background to use as a watermark over photos. However, whenever I export the file as JPEG, the transparent background is white, essentially making the transparent background useless. Is there a way to truly get a transparent background? TIA!
  8. In AD for desktop in pixel persona it is possible to start a brush stroke then hold shift and drag to constrain a stroke horizontally or vertically. Is it possible to do something similar in AD for iPad?
  9. I’m trying to create a new vector brush using both tapered ends. Not sure how to do this on the iPad. When I try to adjust pressure control the app keeps shutting down. What are the significance of the 4 icons within the stroke panel to the left. Nothing changes when I select each one. thanks
  10. After endlessly playing around with units and scales, my set of customizable rulers slowly takes shape. The drawed scale measurings (cm/inches/degrees...) have been verified against Affinity Designers build in rulers and seem to fit well together. Not sure yet, but maybe these will be part of some reusable assets then.
  11. Hey folks! I've created a little collection of some flower brushes for AP and AD (Pixel Persona). Hope you like it. You can download the brushes here: FLOWER-POWER-by-MENSCH-MESCH.afbrushes.zip [12.3 MB] Installation: Unzip the downloaded zip-file. Install the FLOWER-POWER-by-MENSCH-MESCH.afbrushes file in your brush panel. Keep on drawin' Norbert
  12. Here are some fruit assets (vectors) to share: fruits.afassets
  13. Here are a few wood styles: The compressed styles file: Knock_on_Wood.afstyles.zip
  14. Is there a way to zoom to fit the current selected artboard? If you have multiple artboards cmd+0 fits all artboards. But what if I just want to center and fit the current selected artboard? Is that doable? Thanks.
  15. Good morning all, On Affinity Designer, I worked for isometry, styles, depth sides, etc.
  16. HI, Sometimes when I try to group 2 items (or more..) they seem to disappear... I can find them suddenly some place else in the document but when I try to place them back in place - they just disappear... I can see them in the layers panel - but I can't make them appear on my artboard. strange... Can you help me with that? is that a bug? or I'm doing something wrong?... Thanks! Avishag

  18. Hi! I read the forums about the fonts from the summer of 2019. I just downloaded 32 fonts and it's only recognizing seven if that. Very disappointing because X9 can see all of them. (X9 the grandfather of affinity) My font folder says I have a total of 523 fonts, less than what the other users had. I was at the most current version and then I kicked back to version 1.6....and it's still not seeing them - very unhappy is there an extension that I can download to fix this problem. Thanks in advance!
  19. Hi ! I'm trying to use Affinity Designer to import data from Figma and convert it to an Illustrator file to use in After Effects (yeah, pretty dodgy, but to have each layers, this is almost the only way). Everything is perfect, I get different layers, but the only thing I don't get in Designer is the bitmap data contained inside <image> SVG tags. I joined the sample SVG taken from the demo project in Figma. You can open it in a browser to see the difference. All of these sources are dismissed by Designer. It would be awesome if it could parse it! Profile.svg
  20. Is there a way to have text which is on a path, scale like regular text when part of a group? I'll try to explain in detail here: I have a group of objects consisting of 2 text layers, 4 shape layers. One of the text layers is on a path forming an arch over my shape layers. The lower text is just normal text. These are all grouped together as one object. When I scale the group, all the layers, including the bottom text scale proportionately. However the upper text layer (on the path), this text does not scale at all.z Thanks.
  21. I'm not even sure how to word my issue, I've attached videos for visuals. I've Googled to no end and still haven't fixed my problem. I've made sure I changed the resolution on my external monitor which is a Toshiba HDTV. I've changed and played with settings under preferences on my Mac. I've had Affinity Designer for a while now and this just started recently. Nothing has changed. I haven't had any reason to mess with my resolutions since setting up my TV years ago. Even if I adjust the overscan, the AD menus still go off the screen. I only seem to be having issues in Affinity Designer. Does anyone know how to fix or point me in the right direction? Thanks!

  22. Cuando los eps tienen diseños complejos de ilustrador, diseño afinidad no te los conserva igual, te los modifica, igual cuando quieres cambiar de ilustrador a afinidad, los textos te los convierten en curvas, el problema con eso, es que si el archivo uno lo quiere modificar, ya no pudiste, tienes que borrar el texto y ponerlo de nuevo, eso no es práctico, deberia tener una opción que te dijera si los textos los quieres borrar en curvas o quieres en letra. Para que no te haga trabajar más. La primera version hecha en ilustrador como se ve esa misma version en AFFINITY
  23. Mainly a bit of fun - I recorded a timelapse-with-hints process video making this image. It isn't exhaustive but it gives a structure. http://saamvisual.com/process/2020/1/15/vector-process-folding-scissors Any feedback very much welcome.
